Transporting cannabis

  • Within Canada, you are allowed to transport cannabis in a vehicle, but it must be secured in closed packaging and not within reach of the driver or occupants.
  • Travelling with recreational cannabis is allowed within Canada and its provinces, provided it was purchased from a provincially licensed retailer. However, international travel with non-medicinal cannabis is not allowed regardless of your destination. 
  • Tourists who purchase recreational cannabis in Canada are not allowed to take it across federal borders.
  • Carrying any cannabis or cannabis products (legal or illegal) across Canada's borders is a serious criminal offence, with individuals convicted of engaging in such activities liable for prosecution.
